farmers insurance agent- good career choice? - Page 4

post #46 of 53
Yes, all insurance positions are a scam.

Salespro1987 I have to say if all you sell is 10-12 cars a month and only make 4k you need to change your screen name. Sales is a grind and is just like anything in life you get out what you put in. A salesman wakes up everyday unemployed until you make your first sale. You constantly have to be chasing your next dollar. It's not easy and not for everyone. It's also a career that has no limits and untapped potential.

Wow...just wow. I am a Farmers agent. The amount of bullshit that people are posting on here is completely laughable. First of all there is no "pyramid scheme." I get 10 % on car premiums. 20 % on homeowners and a little bit lower percentage on renewals. It does not go lower it does not go higher. As far as "having nobody to sell to once you've sold your friends and family." All I have to say to that is that you do not need to be in sales then. You know how I get most of my sales?!?! The phone book. Im not even fucking joking. I started out as my agencies telemarketer. In August of 2014 I finally got my State of Nevada Insurance License. Since August I have sold 88 policies. With about 70 of them coming from the phone book. It is very much possible to succeed in this industry. It just requires a lot of thinking outside the box. I also noticed somebody commenting on this thread saying something along the line of "you basically pay $450 to sell Farmers." Also complete bullshit. I paid $270 to THE STATE OF NEVADA for my license fees. WHICH MEANS I HAVE AN INSURANCE LICENSE FOR THE STATE AND COULD SELL FOR ANOTHER COMPANY IF I  SO CHOOSE. Farmers actually got nothing from myself as far as fees go.

Either way, I would like to thank you guys for bumping it every so often. I always remember to read the post by the used-car salesman, and it gives me a chuckle. The one by the Farmers recruiter is pretty solid, too.

This just continues to draw random first time posters. Really interesting.

Also, can I come over and make sure your insurance needs are being met?

Lol, which is why no one will buy your shitty insurance when they can get it without the post up online. Your career is shit. You are shit. You are selling a bad product. Switch industries or become homeless, schmuck.

Using the phone book to cold call is "thinking outside the box?" That's pretty funny.
